Challenge Partners – Heathfield School is now the hub to a group of Somerset schools within the improvement programme Challenge Partners.
As part of Challenge Partners each school is inspected once a year by senior leaders outside Somerset whose schools are also part of the programme. The findings of the inspection are fed back to SLT (not published).
Your senior leaders in turn have the chance to take part in similar inspections of other schools (again, outside your hub/area).
Being part of Challenge Partnership would normally cost £7 per pupil, a proportion of which is returned to your school and ring-fenced to fund CPD. However, the Somerset Challenge will cover this cost for secondary schools and the Taunton PRU.
